We have to encourage a return to traditional moral values. Most importantly, we have to promote general social concern, and less materialism in young people.~Patrick Bateman, American Psycho

I found Guy de Maupassant's story, "The Necklace", something that I could easily see happening to some people in this world.  Everything seems to be about "keeping up with the Jones'".  For some people, if their neighbors get a 46 in. flat screen television, they have to get a 52 in flat screen television.  If their friends get a 5 person spa, they have to step it up a notch and buy and 8 person spa.  It wasn't really even a surprise to me to see that someone like Mathilde could be so materialistc and overwhelmingly concerned with the way people saw her. 

This kind of situation is unfortunately way to common and I believe that it is something the everyone can relate to these situations whether they have been involved in them themselves or they have just seen it in action.
